Three teenagers are in custody following an armed robbery at the Jefferson I-85 RaceTrac late Friday night.
Juan Ramirez, 17, 3036 Clairmont Road, Atlanta; and Alberto Roque Robles, 20, 1601 Lia Hairrool, Norcross; were charged with armed robbery. The third teenager arrested is a juvenile.
Jefferson Police Chief Joe Wirthman said Saturday that the three robbed the service station around 1:20 a.m. Two of the teenagers reportedly went into the gas station wearing hoods and demanded money. They both allegedly had hand guns. They took money and went outside where a third teenager was waiting in a truck.
A Braselton officer spotted the men traveling down I-85 and gave chase, along with Gwinnett officers. The suspects exited at Exit 111 and went toward Forsyth County. They wrecked about seven miles north of I-85.
Two were captured at the scene and the third was arrested Saturday morning.
